It will be an honor to finally show Deputy Vela the respect he earned 100 years ago this officers memorial week. I’m proud to say that I know a few of his descendants well, all good people.
GOD bless you Deputy Vela and thank you for your sacrifice. Rest easy my brother, well take it from here!!!

Deputy, Brother, we can only hope and pray that the other piece of human garbage responsible for your murder, faced true justice, if not in this life, then in the next.

May your eternal rest be ever peaceful and no doubt, God had Blessed you.
